Radicals & Racists: The Decline of Rational Thought

thinker_smEver tried to have a rational conversation with a radical or a racist or a radical racist, who has an opposing viewpoint?  If you haven’t and intend to give it a try — best of luck to you, as you find yourself bouncing around in the padded cell sensation you never supposed could possibly exist via an alleged “discussion”.  Oh, and when they say something totally off the wall that doesn’t appear to have anything to do with any comment thus far made?  Don’t worry about it.  You haven’t lost your mind.  It really doesn’t have anything to do with anything.  It’s merely a ploy.  (You’re probably winning the legit argument at that point, if not way before.)

The aforementioned actually sums it all up.  Well, maybe not.  I didn’t mention the name calling, insults and hitting below the belt.  Can’t forget those tactics.  They are so precious.

You have the facts and actual evidence.  Don’t worry, you’ll probably be called a *fill-in-the-blank-descriptive cuss word* idiot or moron or some other flattering name.  Then they will probably either take something you said out of context to get you on the defensive (or totally ticked) about that and not address the facts, or they will simply put out one of the distortions or outright lies as though they are either totally oblivious of the truth or really don’t care what the truth is because it doesn’t fit their agenda or their favorite version.

It’s really amazing.

I still remember being told someone was charged with (and convicted of) various crimes.  I kept trying to tell the person that was not so, but the all-knowing person was too busy talking down to me and treating me like a complete idiot to listen.  When the person was done telling me how stupid I was and of all the things I supposedly didn’t know, I said something to the effect, “That’s not true.”

I was immediately told that I just didn’t know.

I said something to the effect, “Since it was my case, I think I know what the charges were and just how good the case was. ”

Facts hadn’t mattered or the person would have done a little research, which would have shown me as the investigating officer and saved a lot of bullying and embarrassment.  Instead, the rumors fit the agenda and the all-knowing person was ready to fight to the end with the all-wrong information.  And that is how it often works.

So, the moral of the story is…

Radicals and racists and radical racists may have a problem with obtaining and processing actual facts… evidence… and documented events, but it’s not your fault.  It’s not even George W. Bush’s fault.  It’s their inability to think rationally and accept that what they want to be, may not actually be.  It’s their inability to even consider they might be wrong and readiness to punish any who don’t see them as the all-knowing ones they think themselves to be.

However…

“If the gloves don’t fit — you must acquit!”
